Love languages: Quality time

Celebrate life with joy and peace! Oh, “Love is a many splendored thing!” Thousands of songs have been written about the four-letter […]

Transgender people get to own the truth of who’s transphobic

Trans flag 4

On a certain level I don’t understand hate. I can’t maintain it against individuals as it takes too much energy; I can’t hold it against classes of people because I’m aware, as a member of a minority community, of unintentional (or sometimes willful) ignorance that bigotry arises from. It takes a certain amount of self-awareness […]

Hillcrest’s new digs


Hillcrest is known and beloved for its Craftsman houses, Mid-Century apartment buildings and tree lined streets. It’s a lively place indeed where residents savor their proximity to restaurants, cafes, boutiques and the trips down memory lane in the now trendy collection of thrift stores.

Historical echoes and present danger

Trump 221

Godwin’s Law, in original form, states: “As an online discussion continues, the probability of a reference or comparison to Hitler or Nazis approaches 1.” Interpretations and corollaries include that a thread should end once this happens, and the person to mention Hitler loses the argument. May it rest in peace, another casualty of President Trump. […]

A docudrama that everyone should watch


When I heard that ABC was going to do an eight-hour miniseries about the gay rights movement – a sort of Roots for the gays – I was shocked. Dustin Lance Black, who won an Oscar for writing Milk, was shocked, too, when he found out ABC was asking for LGBT-themed pitches. But he went […]

Love v. Kentucky


Director Alex Schuman on his new documentary about the historic civil rights battle that led to the legalization of same-sex marriage in the United States. With the nomination, and likely confirmation, of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, many LGBT activists worry that we are one ‘religious liberty’ case away from dismantling the 2015 landmark […]

Freshness guaranteed!


She took a seat next to me at the bar in a popular well-trusted restaurant. An engaging convivial silver-haired woman of a certain age. She told me she was vegetarian and asked what’s good on the menu; so I made a few suggestions. Her wonderment at my in-depth knowledge of the menu dissipated when I […]

SDHDF audit? Gala?


Last year saw major controversy surrounding the San Diego Human Dignity Foundation (SDHDF), which resulted in the forced resignation of its controversial executive director. Soon, other board members resigned and three funds removed themselves and their finances from the SDHDF. I received calls from former and current board members who accused the former executive director […]

This could-be-thorny subject is beautifully tackled


In its most basic description, it’s a muscle. Nothing computerized, no easy-to-follow instructions or list of parts. Nope, it’s a muscle; a dub-thumping, miraculous group of cells that was beating when you were born, due to simple electrical activity. It’s just a muscle, although in the audiobook Beast by Brie Spangler, the heart knows who […]
